  1. Thanks, now corrected. In the Wordpress editor the font is sans serif, so they aren't easily spotted there. But they will have been wrong from day one!
  2. Are you referring to ‘Wooden Heart I Sasha Come Home – Larry Wilson’? If so, I thought that was rather peculiar. I’m just copying and pasting from the original and have had to sort out a few oddities. Very happy to have errors pointed out.
  3. For those who remember the Concertina & Squeezebox Original Readers' Tapes from 1991, we have now remastered them to reduce noise, wow & flutter and bring levels to a consistent modern standard. Some damage has also been repaired and vocal levels improved where necessary. They are a very decent listen now, but you need to access them through the new ICA Recordings library here. The rest of the Readers' Tapes will get the same treatment, so keep an eye on the library. -- Colin
  4. A squawk of Maccanns. I think that is the collective term. Except for the miniature English on top.
  5. Have you discovered the new facility on concertina.org that allows a search of the ICA's extensive and growing library of music, recordings and documents? It is here. When you find an item, click on it and it will display, play etc depending on what it is. Enjoy.
  6. No worries, Wes, the plan is to drip feed the announcements out when they are ready.
  7. 6th February is Sir Charles Wheatstone's birthday.
  8. Really makes you want to join the ICA, doesn’t it? 😇 — Colin ICA Webmaster
  9. Hi, all, The ICA has restored the old craneconcertina.com and it is now live at http://crane.concertina.org. Enjoy. (p.s. It was only completed yesterday, so obviously Just-in-Time!). Colin ICA Webmaster
  10. I have changed from the inbuilt Wordpress search to a Google enhanced search engine that does search the PDFs.
  11. I've just checked the list of recordings in Peter Trimming's archive, and these cover the period you mention. You can see it here: I have this all digitised now, and will get it online in time.
  12. Long before my time, but I can pass on the request. Colin
  13. That is interesting, Wes. When I took over the website after Michel died, I did a lot of tidying up of the files. I found many files were missing: there were links, but the folders were empty. Do you still have copies that I could have to complete things?
